Valentine's Day Craft Part 4: DIY Valentine's Treasure Box

Happy Monday Friends! Next week, it's my daughter's birthday, and I wanted to handcraft  something with love for her. She's her momma's girl. She loves anything that's pink with hearts and roses. The other day, I'm waiting in line in the grocery store, and I found the new issue of Romantic Homes magazine.
 It featured a sweet trinket treasure box by Elyse Major. When I found my daughter's treasure box was my old sunglass case, I knew this would make a sweet gift for her to cherish for years to come. I admit it, I want to make one for myself, and put some sea shells on it, and treasures from our family vacations to the beach.

Her book tinkered treasures has many more easy to make projects to cherish.

This is a fun and easy craft for all ages. My daughter had a blast painting the popsicle sticks with the paint I had left from the Shabby Chic picture frames we did last week. I found a Victorian Rose free clip art, and added some glitter and sparkle.

The best part, my daughter thought it was the coolest thing.
